Profile, Ossie Kilkenny: published November 17, 1991
U2's money man
As the money rolls in from U2’s new album Achtung Baby, one man will be there to count it. Accountant Ossie Kilkenny is the man in whom Bono and the boys place their trust. Paul McGuinness is the high-profile manager who guides their career, but Kilkenny is the man who ensures that U2 sign the best deals, and that they get what they’re entitled to and use it wisely.
